University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Reviews
UW- Milwaukee has been the best fit I could find for myself. The location is great, and right near downtown. The bus system stops in front of the residence halls and many buidlings which makes it easy to get around. Classes are great, especially when undecided. They give you an opportunity to find what you're really interested in! Dorm life is convenient for first and second year students. Meal plans and proximity to campus makes life much easier!
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is undergoing huge transformations that will continue throughout the next decade. Top research facilities, new buildings, professors, and increased investment brought Milwaukee to the top of my list. I am studying architecture at the wonderful School of Architecture and Urban Planning where open studio spaces, big windows, and modern design inspire my everyday work. I stay at Cambridge Commons which are apartment style dorms with A/C, four people that share two bedrooms, one main/general area, one full-size fridge, and a large bathroom. The campus features competitive D1 varsity sports along with growing popularity in intramural competition. The main campus is situated in one of the wealthy suburbs of Milwaukee and is 3 minutes away from Bradford Beach (a popular summer location for beach volleyball and hanging out with the locals) and the expansive Lake Park.
When I was still in high school and had to start thinking about which schoold to go to next, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee definitely wasnt one of my top choices. I am really glad that I chose this school anyway because I actually feel that it is quite an underrated school. There are plenty of great professors here who teach valuable course material. I also find that with UWM being the number 1 in research is quite fascinating!
